‘Christian’ Rap and the ‘Rappers’ Who ‘Rap’

with 6 comments

I know- the title makes little sense.  But that’s fitting, since neither does the entire concept of Christian Rap which, like Christian ‘pop’ and ‘rock’, is a sort of music performed by persons who can’t make it in mainstream music, so they change a few words in their songs, profess faith, and become ‘stars’ among the alternative Christian emergent seeker sensitive prosperity gospel lot.

And if they can’t make it there, they return to their former habitat after questing for fame by ‘abandoning their faith’ (because atheism, like homosexuality, sells).

A popular rapper who admitted to being worshiped by fans and who once claimed to have ‘found God’ and professedly ‘hopped to Christianity’ has released a profanity-laced video claiming that he has fallen away from the faith.

“If Hell is truly Your pit of fire and I get thrown in it, I’ma probably regret the fact that I ever wrote this [expletive],” Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known to fans as “Hopsin,” raps in a new song called Ill Mind of Hopsin 7. “I hopped to Christianity so strongly, then I fell out. Now I’m avoiding questions like a scared dog with his tail down.”

In 2012, during an interview with HardKnock TV, Hopsin stated that he had turned to God and wanted to follow a path of holiness.

“I feel like God is just telling me what I need to do and He’s showing me the light,” he explained. “I’ve been working on my relationship with God … [and] it gets to a point where you don’t want to walk down the sinful road anymore.”

Christianity as publicity stunt.  Hell burns hotter for such.

“I have found God and I see things differently,” Hopsin continued. “I feel like God is going, ‘No, don’t lose hope ’cause these humans are driven by the ways of the flesh and they are all brainwashed.’ God is saying, ‘Just stick with Me, Marcus, and everything is going to be good. Just follow My lead and everything is going to be good.’”

Please shut up and never talk about theological themes again Mr Spin.

But he also commented on how he had observed the youth praise and worship him as a performer on stage.

“They praised me,” Hopsin said. “They almost worshiped me, and it threw my mind off because I’ve never been in that type of situation or position in my whole entire life.”

Insert copious amounts of vomit here.

Look, People, The Bible isn’t A Science Text and Science Can’t Address Ultimate Reality

leave a comment »

As long as people forget that, or never learn it in the first place, these idiotic and pointless arguments will continue.  Scripture doesn’t care about your theory of the ‘how’-ness of it all.  It’s concern is the ‘why’-ness.

Grow up, all of you.

Joel is Joel and Bryan is Rick

with one comment

Below are two photos.  One of Joel Watts and one of Bryan Lewis.  I understand your confusion if you think they’re actually Joel Osteen and Rick Warren.  What you don’t realize is that Joel Watts IS Joel Osteen, and Bryan Lewis IS Rick Warren.  They go by their screen names online in order to cozy up to actual scholars because they aren’t.

And now you know the rest of the story…  When next you speak to Joel Watts, you’re actually speaking to the arch-heretic Joel Osteen.  And when you speak to Bryan Lewis, you’re actually conversing with the slightly less heretical Rick Warren.  The truth is exposed.

Liars and the Lies They Tell: Christian Zionism

leave a comment »

This essay by the Business Manager of IRD ranks right up there with the worst of liars and the lies they tell.  It is laced pillar to post with fetishism for the heresy of Christian Zionism and it spews the sort of bile we are more accustomed to see from the pens of Neo-Nazis and Skinheads- leveled this time not at Jews but at Palestinians.

Indeed, mutatis mutandis, if one substituted Israel for Palestinians and vice versa throughout one would swear one were reading a pamphlet from the pen of Himmler.

In 2010, a film was released that perfectly encapsulated the erosion of Evangelical Christian support for Israel. The film, With God on Our Side, featured a young man learning about the Palestinian struggle and coming to see Israel not as evidence of God’s faithfulness, but as a mean and heartless nation enabled by American Evangelicals who have embraced Zionist ideology.

The film’s narrative of peace-loving Palestinians mistreated by heartless Israelis and their Christian Zionist supporters has been repackaged and promoted again and again by anti-Israel activists in some of the most influential Evangelical institutions in the United States. These activists, often in high positions, have found eager disciples in places like the megachurch campus of Willow Creek and the academic halls of Wheaton College, one of America’s preeminent Evangelical institutions. And they have been able to exploit the resources of popular Evangelical development organizations like World Vision.

Exposing these activists and their strategy is key to thwarting their efforts to undermine Evangelical support for Israel.

‘Undermine Evangelical support for Israel’ is nothing but code for ‘undermine our attempts as Christian Zionist heretics to damn the Palestinians and blindly support a modern state which simply connects itself to an ancient people for the purpose of land-grabbing and displacing inhabitants of towns and villages and murdering them without mercy or regard’.

Let’s expose the Christian Zionists for what they are- false teachers who distort the bible and care nothing for Jews.  Let’s expose them for the unrepentant deceivers and political manipulators that they are.  Let’s expose them for the toadies of zionist ideology that they are.

Charisma News: The Pentebabbleists Are Circling The Wagons

The only reason they would block Throckmorton is because they don’t want him to take part in their circled wagons discussions.  There’s something amiss there.

Total Depravity: The Mantle of Harold Camping

In spite of the fact that predictions of the ‘end’ are never right, and utterly unbiblical, there continue to be those willing to try it-

There’s no point in even trying to argue the facts with invincible ignorance.

Total Depravity: The ‘Christian Motivational Speaker’ Arrested for Drunkenness

justin_lookadoo-620x412Justin Lookadoo, the Christian motivational speaker who makes a living telling teenagers that “dateable girls know how to shut up,” was arrested in Indiana this week for public intoxication. Police found Lookadoo passed out in his car, which he had apparently vomited in. According to a report from local news station WFIE, Lookadoo had to miss a scheduled opportunity to dispense more bad advice at Evansville’s Teen Power Camp on account of being booked into county jail at the time.  Lookadoo failed a field sobriety test and had a recorded blood-alcohol content of .07.

What a grotesque pseudo-Christian.

Lookadoo’s website says that his motivational presentations are “designed to reinforce the importance of high moral values and character for teens.”

Hypocrite.
